BREAKTHROUGHS FROM THE BREAKDOWNS

See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant."

Jeremiah 1:10

Do you ever just break down and cry like a baby? I mean do you ever sit in the midst of a storm and declare that you will never go through this same storm again? Do you realize that when you declare you will never go through the same storm again and mean it that you are getting your breakthrough in the midst of your breakdown?

Breaking down is not a bad thing if you realize who can build you up. Somewhere in the midst of our tears our Father in heaven hearkens to the sound of our cry. Our cry causes God to stop and stand at attention. You see He wants to hear from your heart what causes your pain. He wants to give you a breakthrough during your breakdown.

As I think about some of the storms that I have faced in life I realized that those were the times that I drew nearer to God. Who else could I call that had a definite answer to my problem? Who else understood the entire situation even the parts I did not want to talk about? Who else could make the winds be still? Who else could turn my situation around? Who else but God?

One of the things that I have realized is that God is the answer to everything. Though I may face storms, because God is the answer, I know that I am never alone. Though I may have some heartache, because God is the answer, I know that there is always someone there with unconditional love. Because God is everything I know that I will get my breakthrough from my breakdowns.

So today know that it is okay to cry sometimes. There are times when crying brings about revelations of how you can get your breakthrough. Trust that if you give God all of your problems then He will work it out for you. You have to stand on the promises of God. You have to know the Word of God to know His promises. You have to have a relationship to know His voice. You have to trust that He will give you a breakthrough from your breakdown. Trust God.

Amen!!!

Amen

Something like this can really test your faith, but I trust in his plan and I know there are reasons all of us have gone through this. I haven't quite figured out what that is for me yet but I do believe. xx, Rose

I feel the same way

I feel the same way. I dont want to feel this pain any more. But I'm starting to realize that this pain is a big part of my break through. Every time I dont talk to him or give into him...I feel stronger. It makes me feel good deep down knowing that he has to live with losing the best thing that has ever happened to him. I know that WE have to do the work, but God has given me strength through this that I didnt even think I had. When this first happened to me ( two weeks ago ), I had a nervous break down on the phone. I literally lost it. My mother was in tears because she just didnt know what to do or say to make me feel better. I was angry at God, angry at my ex, angry at myself and just felt like giving up on life. I questioned God why is this happening to me over and over again...why does this keep happening to me. I recently lost a baby in my second trimester ( i was pregnant by my exN) and it DEVASTATED ME!! I just couldnt understand why and how God willk take my baby away from me. I'm single, 36 yo., Never been married. My dream is to get married and have a family. So when this happened , words cannot even begin to express how much this devastated me. But God is good in the midst of my darkest moments. I'm seeing now how his hand his been in this situation all along. He was protecting me. God knows that I deserve so much more and better. I almost lost my life in a head on collison accident 5 years ago. Which left me out of work for 3 and half years. I have to believe that God did not spare me from that accident and bring me through soooooooo much in these relationships to leave me with nothing or little. I say all of this to say, God has something special for all of us. The mere fact that you are on this site, shows his divine intervention into your life. Everyday through my tears and pain, even when I dont feel like saying..I say Thank You Lord...Thank you for healing my broken heart, thank you for giving me strength, thank you for bringing me through this....even though I dont feel this way. I'm just stepping out on faith and trusting God because at this point , I have nothing left to lose. Draw near to God during this time. I never in a million years!!!! thought that I would be strong enougth to say what I'm saying right now after two weeks of breaking up with my ex. This site has definetly helped me. The truth will set you free. Our people perish because of lack of knowldege! Now that I have knowledge of knowing what Ive been dealing with, it has helped me to put this in perspective. Trust me it still hurts like hell!! I still miss him...I still love him..and even wish things could be different. But I've been through sooooooooooooooo much with this man to know that things are never going to change. I just want to be happy, free. I want to come into the blessings God has for my life. Meditate on God's word...I promise you, it will give you strength that you never in a million years thought you had.
Loves and hugs

P.s
Moving forward I will NEVER cast my pearls amongst swine!
